Been to the Black Bear Diner several times for breakfast with my partner. The food is very plentiful, and there is a wide range of breakfast items. My only complaint is virtually every time we eat here we find the food is warm or tepid, not really hot, and the breakfast potatoes are greasy.

Best go when you are hungry, 'cause the portions are huge. Many & varied menu choices, plus prices that will not break the bank. Our waiter was very helpful, attentive, & patient.

Went to lunch with a group of friends. Waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about specials of the day. The atmosphere made me think we were up in the mountains in a cabin. Breakfast is served all day with the biggest biscuits ever.

This is a cozy, friendly place to eat, prices are great and the service was wonderful! It décor is full of bears and is so comfortable. Although in Arizona, my son said he felt like he was in the mountains or "up north".

Very good service and food. Had the pancakes (sweet cream and HUGE), scrambled eggs (done perfectly), and bacon crispy (it actually WAS)! Need to go back for lunch or dinner.

Day after Christmas we went for breakfast. I had the pancake combo: pancakes, eggs and bacon. The pancakes are sweet cream, light and fluffy...but not hot enough to melt the butter <insert disappointment face>. However I know from visiting many times before this was not an every time occurrence, it was a very busy morning. OJ is so tasty and... More

We went to Black Bear Cafe for breakfast. Staff very friendly and food as good as our first visit. This time we knew the serving sizes, not really hungry so got the little size. Ham and cheese omelet with one pancake just right. One poached egg with bacon,tomatoes and English muffin, perfect. We'll be back. (Still the best Cubano sandwich... More
